They begin an affair which she at first thinks will be temporary but instead she falls in love with him and with the person she becomes when she s with him Unfortunately, she has not admitted the truth to him about having a husband back in New York, even when she and Wilson end up in Las Vegas for their own wedding ceremony This is the story of how she tries to keep it all together her two separate lives with two different husbands and their respective friendship circles, and another life as her alter ego, Daisy Strait, and the joys and anxiety caused by her blossoming fame and how that could expose everything.
It was stressful and disappointing to see her string out her selfishness and big time dishonesty to her two very different but kind husbands It was an unusual twist, however, to see the bigamist being a woman rather than a man This reminds me of Charles Kurault s perfidy, although his shadow family knew about his first family at least It should make both men and women pause a bit when they or their spouse travel a lot for business, especially if it s obvious the marital relationship is put on the back burner.
Worst pile of drivel ever I wish I d have stopped reading about halfway through this book, but as I was reading it on a road trip, I kept going I guess I was waiting for some resolution to the story I m still waiting I will not be reading another of Ms Lehrer s books.
In Confessions of a Bigamist Kate Lehrer writes We have obligations, jobs, family.
If we re lucky, we stay involved with our children and grandchildren, parentsfriends This fantastical story line with a surprise ending kept me enthralled in the page turner story of a woman and the exploits of her alter ego in her professional life This book is full of insight and surprises that make it an unusually fun read
This started out really well, then somewhere along the way Kate lost the magic Towards the end, I really didn t care about Daisy Mickey Michelle, I only finished it as I wanted to see if she had to pay for being a bigamist won t tell if she did or not Doubt I will read anything else by Kate, sorry.
I liked it good mindless beach reading.
